Initially, the couple raised about 2 thousand reais with the disclosure. But the fans of Mengão found out and the thing spread. Anyway, now Twelve already has the money for treatment. Danilo promised that all excess money would be donated to an animal rescue NGO.
The dog owner thought of trying to raffle something that had some value, but found nothing. It only had an old video game, which would not attract attention and the car, however, the vehicle was still unpaid.
Anyway, he made a tough decision and put the ticket he had to the Libertadores semifinal as a prize for the raffle. His girlfriend, at first, did not like it, since Danilo loves Flamengo. But it was clear that he loves Doze even more.
